HTC Vision Qwerty Android phone rumoured

Android and a Qwerty keyboard have appeared together in a vision: the HTC Vision. This phone is rumoured to bring Qwerty back to HTC's line-up, along with a 1GHz processor

It's nothing more than a blurry spycam shot from a laconic Croatian Web site, but even an inkling of an Android-powered HTC phone with a Qwerty keyboard has us hallucinating. Rumour has it that this keyboard-packing powerhouse is called the HTC Vision, and it's running version 2.1 of Android. 

The Vision is still unclear, but look out for a 94mm (3.5-inch) 400x800-pixel screen, a 1GHz processor and four lines of real key action. It also looks as though it's sporting an optical trackpad like we've seen on the HTC Desire.

If the Vision does materialise, it will be the first Qwerty-sporting Android phone from HTC since the T-Mobile G1. It won't be alone in offering the mix, however -- the Motorola Milestone and the LG InTouch Max are in shops now, with the Motorola Flipout and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro on their way.
